We're into day three of LFW. It gets majorly busy from here on in, but we've found an hour to share what is inspiring us.
JONATHAN SAUNDERS DIVINE MODERN ELEGANCE
This collection puts Jonathan in the big leagues for me
The designer totally reinvented his print technique, the mix of print and graphic is brilliant
J.W ANDERSON SHOW
Fierce faced model Hannah Noble at J.W Anderson. This outfit is so fresh, young and accomplished looking. More surprising still that this is the designer's second womenswear collection.
DANIELLE SCUTT COMEBACK
Danielle Scutt back on the runway off-schedule Saturday morning after self-imposed exile. It was a tightly edited very Danielle-at-her-best kind of show. Sexy and fierce all at once with great gold jewellery piled on. We really like the fake-hair tassel earrings. Tassel earring being most popular also in New York. Danielle is a talent who finds the limelight hard, but she worked it and produced a collection to be proud of.
HOUSE OF HOLLAND NAUGHTY & NICE JUMPERS
Henry's friends tittered on the front row when this jumper, modelled by this butter-wouldn't-melt demure young lady, appeared on the catwalk. At the end of his show Henry took his bow wearing one. In slang sign-language it apparently means "shall we fuck?". Though we would like confirmation of this. Any sign language experts out there?
Henry also did some more tasteful looks, such as this. Jumpers/sweaters whatever you call them, are going to be major for AW11. Love the pearl detailing on this jumper. Also the orange/yellow flecked herringbone tweed trousers are special. Its a young royal, gone cool. I feel strongly that Henry is stepping smack-bang into the fashion territory vacated by Luella Bartley whern her business closed down. Smart boy.
CHARLES ANASTASE FRENCH DOLLY GIRLS
Double-breasted coats, jackets and car-coats are popping up all over the runway. A huge trend in the making too, is that for looping a seemingly endless woollen scarf multiple times around the nek to create a scarf larger than an in-flight-pillow. Oh and wide-leg trousers are here to stay.
WILL UPDATE MORE LATER!
